Indian skipper Virat Kohli once again has failed to make a big score after getting off to a start. The Indian captain once again tried to hit a big booming cover drive, this time off the bowling of Marco Jansen, but could only edge it behind to wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock. In this way, another innings just goes by where Virat Kohli has failed to score an international hundred.
Kohli was out in a similar fashion in the first innings too, trying to hit a ball wide outside the off-stump off the bowling of Lungi Ngidi, but only managed to find the fielder Wiaan Mulder in the slip cordon. The skipper will be disappointed with the way he has been found wanting outside off-stump

After India ended Day 1 strongly, it looked like there was going to be just one winner in the contest. However, after rain played spoilsport on Day 2, the game began to move at a quicker pace on Day 3, with a record 18 wickets falling. India lost seven wickets for just 55 runs and were bowled out for 327. In reply, South Africa were bundled out for 197, giving India a sizable lead of 130 runs.
Resuming at 16/1 on Day 4, India are scoring at a decent rate but are also losing wickets at regular intervals. It will be interesting to see how Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane approach the situation. With both batsmen due a big score, all eyes will be on how India bat in order to help themselves set a huge target for South Africa.
